“That was the first rule of demonology: make certain the demon’s incentives align with your own.”
🌟 I have been in the mood for a Sanderson story lately for an unknown reason! I didn’t want to continue the second Mistborn trilogy yet so I was going to discover his other works as Elantris and Warbreaker. When I saw this Gift from Brandon, I thought it was a sign, it was also the perfect time to read this. This is a short story so that was also a good thing because his other books are huge.
🌟 The first thing I touched upon starting this is unsurprisingly the World building which Brandon is a master of. I have never played Magic: The Gathering but you don’t need to before going into this. I believe there will be things that I missed but it was a good experience nonetheless.
🌟 The writing is good but I know this is not Sanderson at his best and I guess authors as him are better in writing longer stories because it shows their potential and intellectual potential.
🌟 The plot was very expected for me from the first few pages and I don’t know if this is due to reading many Sanderson books or if it was obvious, guess I will never know!
🌟 Summary: I don’t have much to say about this book, guess because of its short length. It had an OK writing, good pacing but was kind of expect able. This is definitely not a new favorite but it does not change the fact that Sanderson is still a fav author of mine! I ended up giving it 3 out of 5 stars!
🌟 Prescription: For fans of Magic: The Gathering game and for those who wants to discover Sanderson style by reading something light.
